Brainstorming & Strategy

Major and planned gifts are the result of a comprehensive strategic plan and the long-term cultivation of donors.

Prospect Research & Identification

Your ability to connect your charity’s mission, vision and goals with a prospect’s values, interests and priorities depends on effective research and preparation.


Your charity’s connectors build bridges to your prospects. Connectors have, in some way, an association or relationship with your charity and prospects and may even be able to influence them.


Effective prospect cultivation and solicitation requires excellent communication. Well-prepared communication materials build your prospects’ interest and enthusiasm and have them consider making a major or planned gift.


Leverage engages prospects to understand the impact of major or planned gifts. Estate, financial and taxation planning should always be discussed in cultivation meetings with your prospects.


An alliance is the relationship between your charity and your prospect. Major and planned gifts from total strangers are wonderful but exceedingly rare. Developing deeper relationships with your prospects and donors through genuine engagement should be your charity’s top priority.


A great deal of preparation and thought undertaken by your charity and your connectors is required to present the best case and ideal donation opportunity to your prospect when asking for a gift.
